ZONE ALL STAR MEET RECAP
Thank you to all the VJO swimmers and parents that helped volunteer at the Zone All Star Meet. We had some CRAZY weather conditions, but the meet went very well and everything ran very smoothly. We raised over $950 from our snack bar and received a $2,000 donation for hosting the meet. Thank you everyone for helping to make the meet a success for our LSC. It was a huge honor for VJO to be able to hold such a high caliber meet at our home pool. We couldn't have done it with all of you. Thank you! Go SHARKS!

MANDATORY GROUP PARENT MEETINGS
In March VJO will be having mandatory parent meetings for each group (Hammerhead 1, Hammerhead 2, Leopard Sharks, Mako Sharks, Age Group and Senior). In these group parent meetings the coaches will be talking to the parents and discussing important topics such as; group expectations, group requirements, group goals, current and long term group focus and parent/swimmer/coach communication. We encourage parents to bring your questions. Our board members will also be present to answer any non-coaching related questions. All groups will have regular practice on these parent meeting days. Group parent meetings will be held in the portable buildings next to the pool (707 & 709 Heartwood Ave).
